I'm about to seam a pullover and the pattern says to seam the shoulder first with runnign stitch but I can't seem to find out how to do it from any books or online. Anyone know how its done? Or of a good way to seam shoulders?

That's kind of weird...running stitch is just the "up and down" plain sort of sewing you think of for sewing, say, a couple pieces of fabric together.  It's just plain sewing. 

Usually for sewing I whipstitch the sides together.  (Go under the "little V" of the cast off stitches on one side, then the other, the go under the next little V on the first side, etc.  Repeat ad nauseum.)  Looks like little diagonal stripes on the wrong side.  You can't usually see anything on the right side.  I think this gives less bulk in the seam than a running stitch.
